Our People

The Leeds and South and West Methodist Circuit came together on 1st September 2015

Our Team of lay and ordained people serves 23 churches from across the western side of Leeds.

Together we undertake to share the Good News of Christ’s love and to support the work of our local churches as they share his abundant blessings across their communities.

Our Structure

Headingley and West Circuit

LOCAL CHURCHES are the “Grassroots” from which most mission work and worship is delivered with the help of many volunteers.

Churches are grouped together in CIRCUITS who provide collective support.  Circuits make ministerial appointments and provided

accommodation. Lay employees and volunteers are also recruited. Ministers are assigned pastoral care for a group of churches. A central plan for worship across all the churches is created.

Circuits are then grouped together in wider areas which are called DISTRICTS. We are in the Leeds District. Support can include: Training, pastoral care, media relations, property and legal advice and organising larger initiatives.

The Methodist Church in Great Britain is known as the CONNEXION and our overall policies are agreed through the work of the council and our annual conference of representatives, including matters of doctrine, structure, legal, financial, and social issues.

New Circuit Plan

The March - May plan is now available.
